Try a Technique - Masking

Hello Friends,

Happy Friday!  We are going to St George today in Southern Utah to take our second daughter, Kayleigh to college.  I am so excited for her but yet on the other hand, so sad as I am going to miss her so very much.  Kayleigh has helped me so much over the past years with my Stampin' Up! business and I have loved having her go to workshops with me - she is a great helper.  Click here to read about just one fabulous event Kayleigh helped with.

Enjoy this fun technique today - "Masking" ~ Give it a try !

1] Stamp image on card stock.
2] Stamp it again on a piece of scratch paper.
3] Cut carefully around the scratch paper image, cutting just inside the lines; this will be your mask.

4] Place the mask on top of the card stock image.

5] Stamp another image over a portion of the mask to create layered, interacting images.

6] Remove the mask to see the finished look.

7] To stamp a partial image, use tape to cover the part of the stamp you don't want to appear, ink the stamp, remove the tape, and stamp the image.


To ensure that the mask stays in place, stamp image on a Post-It® note.

Have a wonderful day!
